Every building needs some way to manage rainwater. Gutters, spouting, downpipes, and fascia all form part of an effective rainwater system. As a specialist roofing company in Christchurch, we help roofs easily get rid of water.
MOVING RAINWATER AWAY FROM YOUR HOUSE IS THE PRIMARY FUNCTION OF YOUR SPOUTING SYSTEM.
If you need spouting for your new build or to replace existing spouting, we offer expert advice and installation of the most appropriate products to meet your requirements. Our expert team installs and repairs spouting and guttering in single or multi-level residential or commercial properties across Canterbury, from Ashburton to Hanmer Springs.
Whether you are building new, or upgrading an existing property, our team of specialists offers expert solutions. No job is too big or too small. And as with roofing and roofing materials, there is a huge range of options when it comes to guttering, spouting, downpipes, fascia and rainwater systems. We can explain the range of solutions (profiles, materials, colours) to best fit the style of your home.
Guttering and spouting materials available for your home include:
- Stainless Steel
Because we’re independent, we’ll propose the ones most suitable for your needs – and install it expertly.
Do you need spouting snow straps and ties?
These can be quickly installed to help your gutters cope with any unexpected weather events.
Do you need a Spouting Clean?
DCM Roofing also offers a spouting cleaning service to vacuum and clear out any debris that can clog your gutters.
Why is that important?
- Blocked spouting prevents the flow of rainwater. That’s a gutter’s most important job!
- Debris in your gutters puts pressure on the fittings, often causing spouting to sag and bow.
- The rotting debris can attract nasties – mould and skittery mice.
- When gutters are blocked with moss, soil, grass, leaves and branches, it can cause corrosion over time, which means they will need to be replaced.
- Finally, blocked spouting creates the conditions for leaks to find their way into your home. Trust us, you don’t want that to happen.
New gutter installation, existing guttering repairs or replacement, spouting maintenance or cleaning – DCM Roofing does it all.
WORKING HIGH UP
LADDERS AREN’T FOR EVERYONE
Not everyone feels confident climbing and standing on a ladder – and that’s amongst single-storey homeowners. For two-storey homes, or hillside properties, or commercial buildings, regular maintenance of spouting systems can be just too scary (and too dangerous) to do yourself. We love working at height and have the gear to do it safely.
SPOUTING CAN LOOK GOOD
Spouting and downpipes are the visible elements of your home’s rainwater system – they don’t need to look just like every other house on the street. As Christchurch’s professional roofing company, DCM Roofing has decades of experience making homes stand out with personalised spouting solutions which work perfectly and look great.
Our efficient spouting systems keep rainwater away from your valuable home.
Moisture and mould on your foundations is prevented with appropriate spouting.
No more water pooling or dripping – we get gutters to flow smoothly every rainfall.
Frequently Asked Questions
MY SPOUTING LEAKS. DOES IT NEED REPLACING?
A leaking gutter can be a simple loose junction, which is a quick fix. But if your spouting is old or damaged, it might be time for new.
HOW MUCH DOES NEW SPOUTING COST?
It depends on the property: how many metres of roof edge, the number of angles, junctions, downpipes, single/double storey…
CAN I WATERBLAST THE LEAVES FROM MY GUTTER?
Well, sure, but that just pushes all the debris into the downpipes, blocking them instead. Better give us a call – we can vacuum your gutters.
HOW DO I PUT IN A WATER CATCHMENT TANK?
Saving rainwater for your garden or car washing is a great idea. We have lots of ways to make that work for your house – call us today.
DOES NEW SPOUTING LAST A LONG TIME?
When you select quality materials you should expect spouting and downpipes, with regular maintenance, to last 20-40 years.
WILL IT TAKE LONG TO INSTALL MY SPOUTING?
A full house installation usually takes a couple of days. Repairs can take a few hours. Both are quicker than fixing a damaged home…
We have used DCM for gutter repairs, re-roof and also snow straps to be fitted. On the 3 occasions we have found them professional and the standard of the work was A1. Would recommend Iain for any roofing needs.
